Vale Dan Alexander

The team at the Cooperative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction (CRC ORE) are shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Dr Dan Alexander.

Dr Dan AlexanderDan was an avid supporter, generous contributor, and good friend to CRC ORE. More importantly he was a close long-term friend to many of those who work with CRC ORE.

Dan was certainly a mining man, from his early career at WMC Resources, to leading JKTech and more recently heading up technology development at Anglo American. Throughout his career he was a fierce advocate for making positive change in the mining industry through the use of innovative solutions.

We will be forever grateful for Dan’s tireless efforts to help establish CRC ORE and guiding us to where we are today.

Dan and his legacy will be honoured at an appropriate time, but at this moment our thoughts and condolences are with his family who have lost so much, so suddenly.

A good man, a great friend, with a brilliant mind. Dan Alexander will be missed by many.
